Startacus Launches its Startup Publicity Programme!
by Startacus Admin
Here at Startacus we’ve got some exciting new plans to provide startups with an affordable publicity and PR programme.
We know that it’s not always that easy to take an idea and turn it into something real - that, after all is why we created Startacus - the self start society in the first place.
Since that initial creation, we’ve been growing Startacus into a fab community of creatives, startups, self starters - all sorts of people doing their own thing. It’s a place filled with all the info, support and inspiration to help make starting, sustaining or growing a business as easy as possible. Over the last couple of years Startacus members having been sharing their startup news, telling their startup tales and submitting their startups, ideas and projects into our rather fab showcase and collaboration space.
Access to expert PR consultations with Amy Manuel from Contentd and her 6 step challenge that will help you get your startup story ready to share with the world.
As we grow we want to make sure that those Startacus members who need an extra push or publicity can do that as quickly as possible and at a cost effective price.
Getting good publicity and PR for your project / startup can be a costly affair, especially if you go direct to a Marketing / PR agency, whose typical clients are established businesses, with much deeper pockets.
To level the playing field a tad we have devised a number of cost-effective publicity services for startups to make it both easier and more importantly, affordable to tell the world about your startup
Here’s a few of the things you can do:
Allow us to host a giveaway or competition on behalf of your startup that will give you a great opportunity to showcase your products or services
Have an in-depth feature on Startacus where we interview you about your startup, its story and your business offerings or services
Add one of your own articles to the site on an area of your expertise, thereby giving you some valuable PR
Advertise your product or service in one of our 200x200 sidebar advertising spaces
Use our growing social media audience to promote your business directly over a 4 week period
So who is this for? Admittedly some Startacus members may have outgrown this level of publicity - they may already be heavily trading and ‘bringing in the bacon so to speak’, so this is aimed at those startups who don’t have a massive budget and are perhaps still in the early stages of their startup journey. Of course all startups are considered on their own merit!
If you’re interested in using this service, simply email our PR guru Alastair:[email protected] and he’ll be happy to chat about which options best suit, and any other creative ideas that can be developed.
And fear not, if you’re a more established business / brand, check out our 'Work with Us' page for more info on how to do just that.
